Notes

Joyful Mysteries:
Mondays and Saturdays. (Also, Sundays in Advent, if you like.)

Luminous Mysteries:
Thursdays.

Sorrowful Mysteries:
Tuesdays and Fridays. (Also, Sundays in Lent.)

Glorious Mysteries:
Wednesdays. (Also, Sundays in Ordinary Time.)
(Or you can just ignore all the complicated instructions, and say the Glorious Mysteries on all Sundays, which is what we've always done around here.)

There are also some nice full recordings of the Scriptural Rosary by other folks elsewhere on the site, if you search for 'rosary'.

Thank you for a beautiful version of the Holy Rosary. I will be praying along daily. It was a blessing to find this today. Meditations were excellent and scriptural, moderator's voice was peaceful and undistracting, and the volume and pace was ideal. Thank you.

Subject: Very nice
The female reader's voice is relaxing, clear and even.

It may be my computer, but the volume across all the Mysteries seemed low, even when I had it on a close-to-max setting, otherwise I had no problems.

Very nicely done. The "Rosary_end" track includes both the "Hail Holy Queen" and the traditional final prayer ("... that we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise ...").

I also like to say this prayer to St. Joseph after the "Hail Holy Queen":

"Joseph, son of David, and husband of Mary; we honor you guardian of the Redeemer, and we adore the child you named Jesus.
St. Joseph, patron of the universal church, pray for us that, like you, we may live totally dedicated to the interests of the savior. Amen."

Thank you for these recordings.
